Today I want to share all about the exclusive Close to My Heart Cricut Collections. For years now, Close To My Heart has been creating Cricut Collections full of tons of images–as in around 700 images per collection! Did you know they just recently started doing mini collections specific to our new paper collections? That’s right–if you like images found in the patterned paper, you could cut out your own just like it! Last week, Close To My Heart did a blog post all about it. I’m sharing it with you here today so you can get all the details, too!
There’s nothing like a well-placed Cricut® cut to give your projects that extra pop! When you bring Cricut into the mix, your crafting possibilities are endless. In order to offer even more creative options, we’ve partnered with Cricut to create coordinating mini collections for the paper collections featured in our bi-monthly catalogs!
Although we recently said goodbye to our May–June catalog, along with the Aurora and Stitched Together suites, you can still access their coordinating Cricut® collections. These mini Cricut collections, will be available exclusively through your Close To My Heart Consultant for a whole year!
Today, we’re giving you an exclusive look at the Aurora and Stitched Together Cricut® collections and introducing you to the new Summer Vibes and Timber collections from our July–August catalog. These collections are designed to coordinate seamlessly with the patterns, stamps, stickers, and embellishments included in their corresponding paper suites. However, these versatile Cricut shapes can also be used on their own as you branch out and open the door to new avenues of creative possibility!
With rugged designs and a rustic feel, you’ll be ready to embrace the call of the wilderness with the Cricut® Aurora Collection.
Just look at how these simple pine tree and wolf shapes coordinate with the Aurora paper patterns and stamps to create beautifully unique background elements, while this adorable airplane creates a perfect focal point for this fun card!
Good times are made even more memorable when paired with the delightful Stitched Together Cricut® collection!
When the shapes in this collections are combined with the vibrant designs and color palette of the Stitched Together suite, you’ll be amazed at the artistic possibilities you’ll find!

Sunglasses and sandals set the tone for the exuberant Summer Vibes Cricut® collection! With so many fun, summertime shapes to choose from, you can create the perfect title, accent, or background piece to coordinate with your Summer Vibes artwork.
Using Cricut shapes in your artwork is a great way to cultivate a unique, polished look. Because these shapes coordinate flawlessly with the other elements in the Summer Vibes paper collection, you can create stunning page elements, like this innovative combination of a Cricut shape, Thin Cuts die-cuts, and a Summer Vibes acrylic shape! (Can you tell which is which?)
